TAYA IT creates easy to use applications and services for people looking to digitally engage with Middle Eastern culture. TAYA IT was founded by Wafik Shamma in 2006 as a research and development lab. Through 2010 the company developed core technologies for Arabic Natural Language Processing and related Artificial intelligence algorithms. Its main mission was to enable better creation and retrieval of digital content with special attention to Arab culture and language. The technologies Taya IT develops serve both web and mobile based products targeting enterprises and consumers.
During 2012, TAYA launched various products. All products and services are managed individually as standalone entities. Each product has its own Product Marketing, development and operations team, just like startups but under one company where they share the other resources like User Experience design, R & D and Marketing. The company is currently starting the process of getting listed in the stock market for small and medium enterprises, NILEX.
